Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that severe weather chances will increase for parts of the area Wednesday evening. Threats of large hail, gusty winds, and heavy rainfall will show up in Kansas.
Skies will be mostly cloudy with breezy south winds. Lows will drop back to the 50s and 60s, and by Wednesday afternoon, much of the area will see highs in the 60s and 70. Storm chances will ramp up after 4 pm, and once storms get going, they will move to the northeast.
The threat for severe weather will end by midnight and even though some leftover showers may be around early Thursday, the chance of heavy rains will be east of the area.
It will be windy on Thursday and cooler too. Highs will be in the 60s with mostly cloudy skies. Wind gusts could go above 30 mph.
